  • Patent number: 9997885
    Abstract: A method is for producing a cable which comprises a conductor and a barrel. The conductor has individual wires and is enclosed, at least in portions, by a piece of insulation. The conductor is heated and a crimping process is carried out for electrically contacting the barrel with the conductor. The barrel is pressed together with the heated conductor during the crimping process in such a way that the conductor is initially compressed on a first axial sub-portion of the conductor and subsequently the compression of the conductor is spread to a larger second axial sub-portion.

  • Patent number: 9929518
    Abstract: An assembled electrical cable includes at least one core that is surrounded by an insulating sheath and that extends in a longitudinal cable direction between a first and a second free end of the cable. At the first free end of the cable, the core is freed of the insulating sheath and is provided with an electrical contact element. The core, together with the contact element thereof, is accommodated in an electrically insulating carrier. The carrier has at least one cutout through which the contact element is externally accessible. The contact element is provided in a section with an electrical insulation that differs from the insulating sheath.

  • Patent number: 8523002
    Abstract: A boss system for a pressure vessel includes a boss and a capture sleeve. The capture sleeve is substantially embedded within a liner of the pressure vessel adjacent a vessel opening. The capture sleeve is provided with a plurality of attachment members configured to cooperate with the boss to secure the boss to the liner of the pressure vessel. The boss system minimizes the effects of pressure and temperature variations during use of the pressure vessel, militates against an axial and rotational movement of the boss, and facilitates installation and replacement of a seal disposed adjacent the boss.

  • Publication number: 20110262130
    Abstract: An electronic apparatus, e.g., a central signal unit for a vehicle, has a signal receiver which operates in the optical wavelength range for receiving signals of an external signal source, and an internal signal source for emitting signals which are different from signals of the external signal source, and which operates essentially in a wavelength range which is the same as or directly adjacent to the wavelength range of the external signal source. The signal receiver and the internal signal source are situated in the apparatus behind a reflective cover. The apparatus includes a suppression unit which prevents generation of interference signals at the signal receiver.
